Posted in Games by Reuben Drake on June 28th, 2011

This isn’t much of a surprise considering how well the game has done everywhere, but according to ChartTrack, Call of Duty: Black Ops has now become the UK’s best selling game of all time, beating its closest rival, Modern Warfare 2.

Since its launch last November, 3,722,411 copies of the game have been sold in the UK alone. This comes after Activision had announced that Black Ops was already the best selling game ever across North America and Europe, with 33% more unique players than Modern Warfare 2. Proof that a well crafted game will reward it’s makers.

Posted in Games by Reuben Drake on June 1st, 2011

Roku and Rovio have joined forces to bring the Angry Birds game to Roku’s streaming service. This new service will allow you to play Angry Birds, Angry Birds Seasons, and Angry Birds Rio games all from your Roku streaming box.

There will also be an extra Angry Birds video channel with extra content like short animated Angry Bird stories and the ability to purchase Angry Birds merchandise. The game will be available this summer on a new Roku box. Also a new remote maybe in the development stages for a more functional game controller for future releases. Sounds good.

Tetris Wedding Cake

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on May 24th, 2011

Marriage can be a lot like Tetris. Sometimes the pieces fall slow and they all click into place. Other times… At least I think that’s what this cake signifies.

The cool thing about this Tetris cake is that all of the pieces are separated so you could actually play the game if you wanted. Cool cake. Not sure what it says about their wedding though. May they have many games of Tetris ahead of them.

Is this an early look at the Wii 2?

Posted in Wii by Conner Flynn on May 19th, 2011


Alright Nintendo fans. Sit down. Relax. Grab a Mario stuffed animal or something. This is bound to excite you. We have some potential news for you about the upcoming Wii 2. This is supposedly a video shot by a sneaky developer that gives us a rough look at what we can expect from the console.

We will know for sure what the Wii 2 is all about in a few weeks at E3, but for now hit the video. The controller looks like they slapped a screen on a GameCube controller. The console looks pretty typical of what you would expect. Something that looks like a docking station for the controller can be seen at the end. It all seems pretty legit. What do you think?

Nintendo to plan first-party game launches around third-party publishers

Posted in Nintendo by Conner Flynn on May 2nd, 2011

Nintendo knows all about supply and demand and how to work the system. There is high demand for Nintendo’s games, so much so that often times third-party game sales on Nintendo’s consoles suffer at the hands of first-party titles.

Nintendo, in a move to avoid hurting it’s third party titles, has decided that they will only decide on the dates of popular first party releases after they know the release plans of other companies’ games. That has to be good news to third party developers.

Angry Birds is the best-selling PSN game

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on April 11th, 2011

Out of all of the games on PSN, which do you think is the bestselling? Surely something that’s been getting sales for a while right? Wrong. Angry Birds, which was just released on the PlayStation Network in January of this year, has already become the best-selling game on the platform. That’s pretty amazing when you think of all of the other big PSN games. Those birds have channeled their anger to become an unstoppable force.

The info comes from Lazard Capital Markets analyst Colin Sebastian. He didn’t give any specific sales figures, but he did say that PSN now has “75M registered accounts Worldwide, half of those are in North America, with over 1.4B pieces of content downloaded since launch. He also stated that PSN is becoming more popular among more casual users. Yeah, obviously that’s true.

PC gamers can also use Roxio’s new PC Game Capture software to record their games, and both versions come with a variety of editing tools so you can edit your clips.

Call Of Duty Black Ops now the all-time best selling US game

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on March 10th, 2011

This isn’t really a surprise since most of you reading this are probably just taking a breather between Prestige levels, but Black Ops has now sold more than Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Planescape Torment, Super Mario Galaxy and basically any other blockbuster game.

The information comes from NPD. The folks at Treyarch are surely celebrating. Now comes the hard part. Having to outdo themselves and make an even better game so they can do it again and celebrate some more.

GoPad Atari Asteroids

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on March 7th, 2011

Every now and then I want to play some Atari games, but I don’t want to dig up my old console and hook everything up. So this is a great way to get in a quick game of Asteroids. GoPad has released the Atari Asteroids gaming controller which comes preloaded with Asteroids and works with PCs and Macs.

Just plug in the device and fire up the game and go pew pew pew. The mini-controller has a d-pad and four buttons to shoot. Not sure why such a simple game needs four buttons though. You just need one to shoot. The GoPad Atari Asteroids game is just $24.

OnLive offering free MicroConsole when you buy Homefront game

Posted in Games by Reuben Drake on February 27th, 2011

If you were thinking about buying a $99 OnLive Game System, here’s some good news for you. If you pre-order THQ’s Homefront on OnLive for $50, you’ll get a voucher for a free MicroConsole and a free game. Not too shabby of a deal.

The deal runs through March 14th, and just so you know, supplies are limited, shipping costs extra, and you won’t actually receive the hardware until after the deal expires. It might not be a good sign for the company that it has to give away it’s console with this deal at such an early stage in it’s life, but either way you win.

Killzone 3 PS3 game leaked online before release

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on February 14th, 2011

We’ve all been waiting for Killzone 3 to arrive. The game looks amazing and should outdo Killzone 2 in sales and overall awesomeness. But now 41.4GB worth of files have been leaked to Torrent sites containing Guerrilla Games’ upcoming first-person shooter for the PlayStation 3.

The game isn’t due to be released until Feb. 22nd. That’s a problem obviously. But it isn’t all bad news for Sony. Only hacked PS3 consoles will be able to play the game. The 41.4GB file contains the European version of the game and a rumored second non-3D version is making the rounds at roughly half the size.

Battleship gets a complete overhaul

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on February 14th, 2011

I remember playing Battleship as a kid. It’s a classic that every kid enjoys at some point, but it has needed an update for a long time. So Hasbro is offering Battleship Live. For your $50 purchase you get an infrared light to cloak the board in order to “see” what is going on.

The gameplay remains the same, the object is to get the right coordinates to sink your opponent’s ships, but you also get spy planes which fly around a track and spy on your opponent’s ships, and to confirm your attack you need to cover both of the “confirm” squares on the side of the board.

Mattel Intellivision Game Console Cake

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on February 6th, 2011

This Intellivision cake looks delicious. It looks just like the classic game console. Okay, maybe it looks like a console that has been slightly melted by intense heat, but it still looks yummy. This one comes from Debbie Goard, who makes all kinds of awesome video game cakes and other themed cakes.

This Intellivision cake is a work of art to anyone who grew up playing the actual console. I’d love to dig into it with a nice glass of milk.

Pokemon typing game for Nintendo DS to come with Bluetooth Keyboard

Posted in Nintendo DS by Conner Flynn on January 31st, 2011

Typing isn’t involved in any of the Pokemon games that I’ve ever seen, but the upcoming Pokemon typing tutor game for the Nintendo DS, Battle & Get! Pokemon Typing DS, will come bundled with a Bluetooth keyboard.

The cartridge will have a built-in Bluetooth chip, since the DS itself doesn’t have Bluetooth. Our guess is that a game that comes with it’s own keyboard will not be a hit since kids want to play games, not type, but who knows. The Pokemon typing game will be released in Japan this April for an unknown price.

Sony getting into the urinal game business as well

Posted in Sony by Conner Flynn on January 11th, 2011

Since Sega is turning public urinals into gaming machines, Sony figures it might as well make a splash in the market as well. The company’s Toylet will calculate the velocity and volume of the urine and “translate” that data into in-game solutions, like Graffiti Eraser.

Some other great gaming moments in the early history of pee games are The North Wind and Her which will require your pee to lift a woman’s dress. This technology is currently being used in metro stations, and may soon enter other public places. Wash your hands.
